Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon took time out of a tour of the Golan Heights on Tuesday to address the sentencing to six years in prison of former prime minister Ehud Olmert.

"On the one hand, it is a sad day when a former prime minister of the state of Israel is sentenced on a corruption conviction. On the other hand, it is a badge of honor for Israel's rule of law, law enforcement and society," Ya'alon said.
